Thursday thoughts...

As Lisa Sonora's ROOT journal prompts come through late in the day, here's my thoughts from yesterday - Day 6...

In striving for perfection what really happens is... I quit - or don't even start! I get a germ of an idea, try something, it doesn't turn out as perfectly as I imagined, so I quit...

What cracked me open was... the stroke - it's hard to be perfect when half your body is paralyzed...

10 things I can offer right now, imperfectly...

  1. Patience
  2. Kindness
  3. A listening ear
  4. A listening heart
  5. A record of my thoughts
  6. Honesty
  7. Openness to Spirit
  8. No judgements
  9. Time - as long as my family needs me today, as long as the Work needs me today
  10. Belief that this is Enough

    Love and hugs to you ~ FlowerLady

    1. Hugs back to you, dear Flowerlady xx

  2. To me, you offer all of those things perfectly! Miss you xxx

  3. I think my first comment disappeared!!! What I'd written in the previous comment was that this is so luscious. SO full of vulnerability and honesty and depth. Just adoring this share, and again super grateful that we've connected!

  4. This is a very moving post today. I needed to hear it. Thank you.
